No matter how busy you get, you must remember to prioritize doing something for yourself. Whether it’s ordering out from your favorite restaurant, treating yourself to that top you’ve been eyeing for a while, or doing a hobby that you love, you deserve a lot of TLC.
For me, my favorite way to treat myself is in the form of beauty or spa treatments. I’ve always loved resorting to beauty and spa treatments as a way to unwind after a long or stressful week. Of course, with a lot of places not being open, I’ve had to resort to good old DIY.
One thing I love to do during a warm bath or shower is to use a body scrub to reveal smooth and soft skin when I step out.
Rather than buying a body scrub, I realized that it is so easy to make one in the comfort of your own home. Not only that, creating your own body scrub adds a special, unique touch that you won’t necessarily find in the store-bought kind.
DIY Body Scrub Recipe
To make your own body scrub, you’ll need just a few simple things you may already have in your house right now.
- 1 cup olive oil or coconut oil
- 1 cup brown sugar
Depending on how much product you want, you can play around with the measurements to get your desired amount. Feel free to add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to enhance your scrub and combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Pop your scrub in a container and you are good to go.
My favorite way to use this scrub is by applying it to dry areas such as my knees, ankles, and the back of my arms. I follow this up by applying a thick layer of body butter or lotion on the areas that I scrubbed to lock in the moisture.
